One of magic’s most influential thinkers and performers, Asi Wind is an inspiration to magicians all over the world as they study and perform his creations. It is very rare that Asi gives lectures and workshop in magic conventions, but when he does he is very generous with his time and knowledge. Wind’s recent off-Broadway show, “Concert of the Mind”, completely sold out, it extended its run and received rave reviews and critical acclaim. He is currently performing his one man show “Do you want to change your mind” in London and New York City.

Steve Gore
Steve Gore has been a professional magician for over twenty five years. He joined the Bradford magic circle in 1992, Northern magic circle in 1994 and the British ring in 1995. He was the past president of the Northern magic circle in 2009, past president of the Bradford magic circle in 2000 and due to be it again next year.

He has built up a contact list of talented and brilliant magicians and friends over the years and will make STIMF 2017 one to remember… for all the right reasons!

He’s performed everywhere from The World Famous Magic Castle, Hollywood to The Orient Express. Outside of being a magician he features yearly in pantomime for UK Productions, taking the role of ‘principal comic’ and also provides ‘audience warm up’ for many TV shows such as A Question Of Sport & The Voice!

Last year Mark flew to Ohio to give a lecture for Penguin Magic USA. He’s also performed and lectured at the world’s largest magic convention in Blackpool, UK.

Mark’s show is a non-stop laugh riot that will have you on the edge of your seat and giggling like a child.

Michael Murray – Lecture, Gala Show
As with most mentalists, Michael’s original interest was in the art of magic. At the age of 16, he was offered a job at the local magic store “Magicbox” and from that point on spent almost every moment of everyday practising ‘sleight of hand’ techniques and devouring as much material as possible. Mentalism didn’t appeal to him in the early days until he saw Derren Brown on TV in 2000 and began his calling.

The first product he ever produced was titled “Beyond ESP”, which is now in its third printing and has sold almost 15,000 copies. Having attracted the attention of several world class performers, including Max Maven, Richard Osterlind and Banachek, Michael had quickly established himself amongst his peers.

R Paul Wilson – Q&A
R. Paul Wilson returns with his movie ‘Our Magic’ which will be followed with a Q&A with some of the stars of the movie.

He is an actor, an author, director, producer and one of the world’s foremost experts on the art of deception, as well as an award-winning magician, creator and consultant. The former star of BBC’s hit show ‘The Real Hustle’ now works in the film industry but continues to pursue his love of magic and sleight of hand, performing for clients all over the world.

Our bed and breakfast accommodation has been please to host both magic festival performers and magic enthusiasts attending the shows in the past. At the time of writing we still have some availability for the weekend of the South Tyneside International Magic Festival. Our bed and breakfast prices and room availability can be found here: online booking. More room information including photographs can be found on our bedrooms page.

South Tyneside Magic Festival Accommodation Review

Best B&B in South Shields. From a very warm & friendly welcome on arrival and each morning at breakfast nothing seems too much to make your stay a good one. The place is immaculately clean and well kept and the beds are wonderfully comfortable. The breakfasts are amongst the best I’ve had anywhere; good in quantity and tasted delicious. They also have a 5 Star hygiene rating for their catering. Facilities available in the dining room if you want to prepare a snack or enjoy a takeaway. No problem parking on street outside. I was driving to and from a convention but the beach front, parks, restaurants of Ocean Rd and the town centre are all within a few minutes walk. I highly recommend Annie’s and just hope it doesn’t mean it will be fully booked when I next want to check in. Don’t let the fact that they don’t know they’re rates are too low dissuade you, this place is a real gem of a find. Room Tip: All of the rooms are good. There are two which have a shared bathroom (private keys); these are great value and the bathroom is impressive – huge roll top bath (with a family of plastic ducks!) and a big corner shower.” title=”South Tyneside International Magic Festival Review – Best B&B in South Shields.
